Manage your favorite Twitch streamers, get instant notifications when they come online, and much more!
NowStreaming is an extension that will greatly improve the way you manage your favorite Twitch streams.
In addition to having all your favorite streamers in one place, NowStreaming will instantly notify you whenever they go online.
- Install the extension! :)
- Hit the NowStreaming icon
- Authenticate with Twitch
- Start following a channel using the text box or import your follow list from Twitch in the Options tab.
- Those channels will now appear on your NowStreaming Streams tab when they are live and you will get notifications every time that happens!
If you don't want to receive notifications, you can always disable it in the Options Menu.
Anything you do on NowStreaming *WILL NOT* affect your Twitch account.

- Fix/Update the "Import From Twitch" button: Due to Twitch's new API limitations, from now on this function will only be able to read and import your own user's followed channels. It will not be possible to import the list of other user's followed channels. For 99% of users, this will not be a significant change.
- Update Twitch OAuth permissions accordingly
- You will need to disconnect from twitch (in the Options menu) and re-authenticate for these changes to take effect
- Bring back the functionality of following the stream you are watching with the click of a button
- Remove the tabs permission completely. NowStreaming will no longer allow you to follow the stream you are currently watching with the click of a button, due to absurd permission wording.
